The Camputers Lynx was an 8-bit computer that experienced a shorter-than-most life in the home computer marketplace, mostly in the UK and Europe. Camputers released the Lynx 48k in March of 1983, a competitor to the ZX Spectrum. Powered with Z80A CPU, the computer was quickly repackaged as a 96k version in September of 1983, with current 48k owners required to send their machines in for a mechanical upgrade. A later 128k version was released in December of 1983. John Shireff designed the hardware and Davis Jansons designed the firmware. The Lynx was priced in the 225£ range, placing it in the expensive side of the low-end home computer market.
Heavy fluctuations in the computer market caused Camputers to go out of business in June of 1984, with the assets being transferred to Anston Technolology, who then transferred the remaining materials and assets to a user group (National Lynx User Group) in 1986.
